Fetters – S/T

Fetters – S/T

Ah, how long it's been since I heard some death industrial that did my body bad. But I'm running out of analogies, and also ways of self-deprecating as a form of humor and not-so-clever criticism, because I've said that too. So how can this be any different? How can a band making reference to binding […]

Disemballerina – Poison Gown

We, a creature of nature, often forget this fact, going about our daily lives, constantly moving forwards, rarely looking back, attempting to live in a present that is at once past and future. It's when we realize our own mortality, when we experience wretchedness that we understand everything is simply on the same path towards […]

Wailin Storms – Shiver

Music critics can be fickle, but even worse they can be lazy.  Lazy reviews focus too much on simple details.  This riff is good blah blah etc.  Further, they typically rely on the most common of lazy errors, that being name-dropping.  "For fans of..." is the veritable slogan for almost every review site in existence. […]

THE THREE HEADS OF CERBERUS – The Last Hour

Well that's kind of a cool title for a little special feature, isn't it?  We previously referred to this as "Triple Header" the last time we did it, which was way before this new version of the site launched.  Since then we've only done our "Double Header" feature a few times, but not the triple. […]

Black Wing – … Is Doomed

So uhhhh yesterday I went hiking to Wallace Falls State Park in Washington. Completely surreal. Felt like at any moment, some horde of Uruk-hai were going to take away the ring bearer. All you could hear was the waterfall and some distant birds chirping occasionally. I only saw two fucking animals - a squirrel and a […]

Orphans of Dusk – Revenant

Ah, Solitude Productions, what good can't we say?  Without wasting too much time, it's enough to simply state that when you see the logo or hear the name, you know it has to do with doom metal.  Hypnotic Dirge Records, hey, what can't we say about them as well?  Though not known strictly for doom, […]

Сруб ​​(​​Srub) – Топь (Bog)

Here's one that takes careful consideration, due primarily to the cultural background behind it, of which few would be aware outside of its home country.  Eastern Europe often receives a great of the west's insensitivity, primarily because so few understand anything of its history.  Remember World War I?  Yeah, read about Apis and learn a […]

Jessica93 – Rise

Goth night.  Let's all hide in the corners and stare at our sneakers whilst viewing the more courageous of dark dwellers engaging in the dance of Goth, faces painted, hair dyed in deep colors, chains around their necks, fishnets down to heels, let us watch.  Let us brood about all things that require pills, and […]

Jessica93: Who Cares

Originally we were going to have a new writer do this a few months ago, but she crapped out, as most "potential" writers do around here.  Seriously, what's so hard about writing a few paragraphs throughout the week for music you receive for free?  Anyway, it was I (editor) who first came across this, and […]
